Forum: audio Subject: The Saint: Great Characterizations

"The Saint" with Vincent Price is "priceless." I like the scripting asides. Price tosses them away like they are ad lib's. The stagey, ego driven characterizations are a hoot. Having been immersed in movie making and now theater, the barbed wit is welcomed.

Case in point is #56 'Actor' where the stage actor tells an actress that she was wonderful "but never, never cross in front of me." That line is one of the most classic show biz lines I've heard. And I've heard a lot.
